Using innovative imaging techniques that allow them to take very sensitive measurements of small regions in the brain, Dr. Perry Renshaw and Dr. In Kyoon Lyoo have conducted a series of ground-breaking studies investigating how drug addiction and mood disorders alter brain structure and chemistry. Their research has documented age-dependent neurobiological deficits in the frontal regions of adolescent methamphetamine users and suggested that some deficits recover with abstinence while others do not. Their binational collaboration has made significant contributions to our knowledge of in vivo adolescent brain development that will advance prevention and treatment efforts around the world.
